250 Flamingos

atelier5

These 250 BIRDS OF A FEATHER in various shades of pink stand over 7' tall. Together these individuals create a colorful floating mass shaped by their environment. Painted aluminum, 20" -24" body size approximately 7' high. The size of the flock (birders call it a flamboyance) remains the same. The area they cover can be as compact as 5'x50' or stretched out in line as long as 600'. Why 250.? Ever hear of Dunbar's number?
